The Best Wedding Kiss perfects the start of a marriage. Sexy kisses or sweet kisses both show the love a couple shares. As such, I know capturing the perfect kiss is the single most important shot from the wedding. However, the Best Wedding Kiss might not be the moment they are pronounced as married. In some cases, the perfect kiss happens later. A couple might share that kiss as they walk back up the aisle, or a more private moment when no one else is around. Regardless of when it happens, that special kiss is the highlight of a day filled with love and passion.
I chose these Best Wedding Kiss nominees for specific, special reasons. Maybe because the bride leaned in a little extra on her tip toes to meet her grooms lips. Or maybe I picked it because the it happened in front of the majestic Teton mountains. Perhaps I chose it because the couple was surrounded by confetti and friends at midnight. I witness some really beautiful love, and capture it with my camera. As a photographer, I’ll never take that for granted. I love capturing love.
Other Benny Awards Categories:
And this year, I’m adding in two non-wedding portrait categories for your voting pleasure! While I’ve primarily been a wedding photographer for the past decade, many of my couples have gone on to have families. As my family and portrait clients have grown, I’ve felt an increasing need to represent them in the Benny Awards! This year I broke it into two categories:

What are the Benny Awards?
Dale from Benfield Photography throws The Benny Awards party each year for his couples. At the party, the winners earn real prizes for each category, such as best wedding kiss and best wedding shoes. Also, this year Dale added two non-wedding categories because so many of this clients are already married and he wanted them to be represented.
